    Feature Request: Add Outlining Capabilities to Evernote Evernote is great, but it's dying for the ability to create Notes that contain Outlines which are easily collapsed and expanded during creation and in use. One way to implement it would be a switchable editing mode, between standard formatting or outline mode. In outline mode, pressing the Enter key creates a new outline item, and pressing the Tab key changes the current item into a sub-item. Clicking on an item's action icon causes its sub-items to collapse out of, or expand into view. That's the way the Ecco Pro PIM did it, and something simple like that would be a good start for Evernote. The name Evernote implies a product that takes notes -and collapsible/expandable outlines are a huge part of note taking.

    And in the meantime you can use a text expander like PhraseExpress to turn nb into notebook:, or nbi into notebook:inbox, which is even quicker.

    I found this quite useful. Don't expect anything from Evernote. The last big change here was the ability to nest notes or tags (can't remember which) and that must have been about 18 months ago. There may be stuff going on "under the hood" but my impression is that the Web version has been effectively abandoned. It is what it is.

    I do. No real template per se. Before I go to the club I create a blank note in the form yyyy.mm.dd name (hh:mm) with Workout as the tag. name can be a partner if I am working out with someone or just me, hh:mm is the time of day. On my phone I will select the new note and my last two workouts of that type so they are visible in recent notes Then as I workout I add the exercise and/or machine and reps/weight using the keyboard. Easy if straight sets of something, a little more time if a pyramid set or whatever, but still fits in the between sets break. When I get back to my PC at some point I will enter the workout into a spreadsheet. I store the spreadsheet on DropBox and access it with a link in a note in EN. I have shortcuts to the Workout tag and the Workout Log note. This works better because I have pivot tables in the spreadsheet. I keep the notes. Not particularly sophisticated, but works for me. I started recording in 2014. FWIW.

    PROBLEM: Sometimes I have multiple PDFs, images, documents, spreadsheets, etc. on a related topic. I want to keep related documents grouped together but adding them all to one note makes it extremely difficult to find what is needed because the documents all seem to run together. SOLUTION: Make it easy to place a number of documents in one note in condensed format. Contents should display as a sort of outline of all contents contained therein. Will promote increased organization and easy access. Create collapsible sections within a note. Each collapsible section has a label/title to identify a sub-topic in the note. Collapsible sections function like grouping rows in MS Excel allowing you to quickly collapse and expand similar data to create more useful views. Expand / Collapse button (triangle) left of the title to view or hide section contents. Within the section, individual documents are displayed with a title and image of the first document page. Document display concept is similar to how Windows Explorer displays multiple documents in a folder. You see an image of the first page and a label (could be the document name OR user created title). Moving collapsible sections. In cases where a note contains one document. Create a collapsible section containing the document. Right-Click on the collapsible section and select "Move" to move the section from one note to another note. Within a note you can drag and drop documents between collapsible sections via their document image. Sections can be reordered by dragging and dropping the section title. Viewing Content Single click on document image to expand and read it. Double-click to open it in a separate window or app.

    You can unstack a notebook by right-clicking the notebook and selecting "Remove from Stack" *To right-click on a Mac desktop, you must press and hold the control key while you click the mouse pad.

    As I am the one who started it let me say it this way. I am very close to move away from Evernote. The great advantage of it is still the better web integration but Microsoft is actively working on this and their web clipper is getting quite good now. With their multi platform approach since last year they're also showing they're willing to bring feature parity across all platforms. What does that mean for Evernote? They need to figure out how to be better than OneNote and it seems there hasn't been a lot happening lately. OneNote, for me anyway, is close to eating their lunch.

    Why do I need this? Because I use Evernote as a notebook for all my Master's and soon to be Doctoral level research. If I get a screen grab of text, and I need to use it elsewhere, I want to be able to extract the text. What I do now, is use OneNote to extract the text, then I paste the text into Evernote. Essentially, I've got to use your competitor's product daily, just to get my work done. More than once, It's made me want to switch to OneNote. And I would too, if I could find a way to convert my notes over, without losing most of the formatting. There are some free tools which do an 'okay' job... Still, I'd loose too much if I switched now. So, if there's truly "no way to tell" how come Microsoft does it so well? i don't accept that answer. Anyway, this is the last feature I need - to be able to uninstall OneNote from my machine. Funny, I was having this issue again today, and I searched thinking, "there's got to be a way to do this." And I came across my post here, from last fall.

    I would like this feature, too and would consider upgrading to premium for it. For example, if I scan a business card and later want to call that person. It would be nice to be able to find the business card by the OCR of the name and then click on the phone number without having to ever manually type it out again. Small time savings but a good feature. There would be many other use cases, I'm sure. Any other ways to solve that use case?

    Evernote really needs to address this. I have had to install OneNote on my computer in order to get the text extracting utilities. I paste images in OneNote, then I get the text and paste it into Evernote... I'm almost inclined to just import everything BACK into OneNote -- I converted to Evernote Premium over a year ago, but now, I'm wondering if I don't need to go back to be able to get the functionality all in one app??? Anyway...

    Hey, I would like to make a feature request for evernote to implement a text collapse, as seen in coding software such as Dreamweaver. The idea is to make it a little bit easier to organise long lists. Simply mark the desired text, collapse it and then you're able to toggle on and off and eventually remove the collapse when you don't need it anymore. Here's a picture I found: http://www.creativepro.com/files/story_images/20050926_expand.jpg It's a really simple feature, but it would make my Evernote life easier! Philip A

    I'm well aware that there are many threads where this issue is being discussed (a good indicator of the demand for this functionality), and with all things being equal (and this thread popping to the top of my search, yes, I used search), I chose to post here. That rather negative statement sets off so many alarm bells with me. 1: So a lot of users have this desire? 2: All those users are wrong for wanting that functionality? 3: They are also wrong for trying to clarify their desire with practical examples? It's all a bit reminiscent to the "You're holding it wrong" iPhone debacle. If a significant volume of users have an expectation of functionality that is unmet, maybe it should be looked into until a resolution or compromise is found. (clearly we are not there yet) At the end of the day, an application should be able to meet the needs of its users and adapt to how users wish to use it. Not all users are the same in terms of needs, experience, preferred interaction patterns, etc. And through good UX you can meet the needs of a varied user base. With good UI design you can have several methods of accomplishing a specific goal without any negative impact on other functionality. Just because tags are powerful (which I completely agree with) does not mean other methods of organization (especially visual) should be abandoned or are irrelevant. The addition of nested stacks does not detract from the value of tags, it merely supplements it and provides a visual representation of an organizational structure than many people are familiar with and inclined to expect. One great thing about good UI design is you can have apples AND oranges if you plan properly and the additional functionality does not create conflicts, clutter, or paradox of choice. Please keep in mind that just because I am expressing desire for an additional feature does not mean I don't like the application. I love Evernote, and I understand your desire to rush in and defend it. But lets not slam users for respectfully wanting more or varied functionality.

    The tagging is great for some users but I think the majority of users would understand and prefer subnotebooks. I think you need to look more at your future customers as EN grows and ask which method they will understand more. In fact, I say leave the tagging feature exactly as you have it now and add the ability to create subnotebooks. Then you would cover ALL users in the future with the best of both.
